Overview of the Greenworks 60BP700
- Power: This cordless leaf blower has a maximum air volume rating of 710 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed rating of 160 MPH.
- Power delivery: If you don’t like dealing with cords, you will be delighted to know that this blower is equipped with a brushless, battery-operated motor.
- Battery: The unit is powered by Greenworks' X-Range 60V batteries (not included in the package) and can run on either one or two batteries, extending its runtime. When running on two batteries, Greenworks's Auto-Switch technology will automatically switch power source when a battery is depleted. The X-Range line of batteries is Bluetooth-capable and can be paired with a mobile device running the Greenworks tools app (available on Android and iOS) which allows monitoring the battery status in real-time. When operating on two 8.0 Ah batteries, the user can expect a runtime of up to 80 minutes.
- Handling: By design, this model isn’t the smallest leaf blower on the market. It’s meant to be carried as a backpack so that the bulk of the unit is out of the way and the user’s hands are free to manipulate the nozzle. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free.
- Speed Settings: With its variable speed settings, the Greenworks 60BP700 allows you to precisely control its air output. In addition, the blower is also equipped with cruise control, with which the user can easily maintain the selected settings.
- Noise: With a decibel rating of 71 dB, the 60BP700 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric backpack category.
The Greenworks 60BP700's performance versus other blowers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Greenworks 60BP700 compare with similar leaf blowers.
- Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 160 MPH, which is rather impressive for a battery-operated backpack blower. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the EGO LBPX8000 and its 190 MPH could be an option to consider.
- The 60BP700 is powerful, with an airflow rating of 710 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This is certainly on the high end compared to other cordless backpack blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Worx WG572, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.
- Its battery is standard in terms of autonomy for a cordless backpack product. Fully charged, it should run for up to 80 minutes. If autonomy is an important factor for you, the Worx WG572 can run for up to 230 minutes and could be worth considering.
